The "City" edition gets rid of the blue and green in favor of a sleek gray, which Nike says follows the "Bold North" theme the state seems to be adopting.

The Wolves, on their website, say the design (it's especially noticeable on the back) recalls "the North’s wintry characteristics and the guard hairs of a wolf during the frozen season."

Very dramatic. Also, pretty cool.
